Business Support fund for Victoria: West Carr & Harvey update

Here’s our latest on the updates to the Business Support Fund for Victoria:


K.Booch – Kombucha with a twist!

By now you will probably have heard of the popular Kombucha, a sparkling drink with probiotics considered to be healthy and delicious. It has become a drink of choice in many cafes and restaurants.

What could be better? Well, West Carr & Harvey client, Nick Cogger from Torquay, has found a way by creating K.Booch, a Kombucha with a naturally occurring alcoholic twist.

K Booch comes in four flavours – pineapple/watermelon, blood orange, rose/raspberry and ginger/lime.

Nick believes choosing K.Booch as an alcoholic drink is better for you than other ready to drink options such as cider. He previously ran a microbrewery for five years and worked on a specific recipe to achieve the natural fermentation process for K.Booch.

Currently the only product in the local market, this new drink is gaining popularity around the region and is available nationally through independent bottle shops and nationally through the Woolworths owned BWS.

The West Carr & Harvey team are excited to support entrepreneurs on their journey to bring new and innovative product ideas to life. Congratulations Nick!
